New-CsTeamsUpgradePolicy

In on-premises deployments of Skype for Business Server, TeamsUpgradePolicy enables administrators to control whether user see a notification in their Skype for Business client of a pending upgrade to Teams. In addition, when this policy is assigned to a user, administrators can optionally have Win32 versions of Skype for Business clients silently download Teams based on the value of CsTeamsUpgradeConfiguration.

Syntax

New-CsTeamsUpgradePolicy
   [-Identity] <XdsIdentity>
   [-NotifySfbUsers <Boolean>]
   [-Description <String>]

Description

In on-premises deployments of Skype for Business Server, TeamsUpgradePolicy enables administrators to control whether users see a notification of a pending upgrade to Teams in their Skype for Business client. The new-CsTeamsUpgradePolicy lets the administrator create a policy that can be assigned to users homed in Skype for Business on-premises to notify of them of a pending upgrade to Teams. Notifications are enabled by the boolean parameter NotifySfBUsers.

For users with Win32 versions of Skype for Business, if DownloadTeams=true in CsTeamsUpgradeConfiguration, users who are assigned an instance of TeamsUpgradePolicy with NotifySfBUsers=true will have Teams automatically downloaded in the background.

Notes:

  • Instances of TeamsUpgradePolicy created in on-premises will not apply to any users that are already homed online.
  • Skype for Business Online already provides built-in instances of TeamsUpgradePolicy, so there is no New-CsTeamsUpgradePolicy cmdlet for the online environment by design.

Examples

Example 1: Create a site-level policy

PS C:\> new-CsTeamsUpgradePolicy -identity site:Redmond1  -NotifySfBUsers $true

This creates a policy for users in the site Redmond1.

Example 2: Create a policy not specific to a site.

PS C:\> new-CsTeamsUpgradePolicy -identity EnableNotifications  -NotifySfBUsers $true

This creates a policy for users that can be granted as desired to individual users
